Creative Journey, The: Arnold Blanch


Published 1964


Filmmaker and artist Clifford West here surveys the life and work of Arnold Blanch, showing him as a teacher and painter in Woodstock, New Jersey. West, who more than 25 films on artists and aspects of art history between 1958 and 1981, utilizes a camera-as-brush technique more in keeping with the approach taken by a painter than a filmmaker. West's serpentine zooms and pans emulate the non-linear way an individual looks at a piece, as opposed to the manner in which a more traditional cinematographer plans, then shoots, a work of art.

Subject: style and technique are less important
style and technique are les importsnt than the message. use of camera music etc. its what he says in the film is what is important is that art is about you and not as nowadays a social statement. art is about the indivifual journey.
